PK4s

Recommended Posts

They are zip files, here's what "file" says:
*****@crates:~/$ file cdrom/Setup/Data/base/*
/home/*****/cdrom/Setup/Data/base/default.cfg: ASCII C++ program text, with CRLF line terminators [heh?]
/home/*****/cdrom/Setup/Data/base/game00.pk4: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract
/home/*****/cdrom/Setup/Data/base/pak002.pk4: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract
/home/*****/cdrom/Setup/Data/base/zpak000.pk4: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract

That are .pk4 files, not Zip. WinRAR can extract .pk4 files, WinZip cannot. I use WinRAR and have no problem.

This is incorrect. The Pk4 files are indeed zip files, simply with a different extension. Associating these files with your favorite archive extraction program will work just fine. Such programs include WinRar, WinZip, or 7zip. If you rename a .pk4 file to .zip it'll even open in XP's built in zip archive system.

I di use WinZip on mine and it worked. I just wanted to find the Doom3 theme. But it wont play on musicmatch or anything.

Get WinAmp, I think it's the only well-known and well-built program that can play .ogg files, which is what the Doom III theme is in.
